We were told at brunch this last weekend that the "Chicken and waffles are out of this world." Well....3 out of 4 ordered and they were just MEH. The sauce needed some KICK or SALT or SOMETHING. It was just underwhelming honestly. Though saw celebrities while dining so not too shabby!

Great, trendy bar & restaurant with good food and good service and a great atmosphere. Plenty of beautiful people enjoying beautiful food.

This was my first time at Laurel Hardware and unfortunately my experience there will probably never entice me enough to go again. The service wasn't horrible, it was just terrible. The food was over-priced and to be honest, quite boring. The only thing that was "good" on the menu was the lobster. Sorry, I wish I could say I had a positive experience. But I didn't.
On their patio, you could be anywhere in the world. Eating here is like being on vacation. The food is excellent, and they have a fascinating wine list.

Made reservations in advance and placed an order for a birthday dessert for my sis but they said they couldn't guarantee it. When we arrived on time, we weren't seated but rather escorted to the bar to purchase drinks. About 10-15 minutes later, we were finally seated. I found it puzzling that they took so long as our reservation was at 7:00pm and the restaurant was less than half full. We had a concert to go to at 9:30 so we didn't want to run behind. Whatever the case, our server was friendly but almost non existent throughout the evening. Appetizers came out at a good pace but entrees took a lot longer which made the pacing of dishes awkward. It took forever to get our dessert despite me reminding our server in case she forgot and we had to flag her down for the check and flag her down again to get the check processed. It's just too much work to enjoy a dinner imo. I'll being going elsewhere for my dining choices from now on.
Great food, service and dining experience
I have eaten at Laurel Hardware quite a few times and always enjoyed the service and food. This is a great place to hang out with friends. It's consistently an enjoyable dining experience.

Laurel hardware has amazing food and the location is spot on perfect..... But with all good things there is a catch! Don't expect good service the server spent maybe 2-3 minutes at our table. My friends meal arrived 15 minutes prior to my meal and the excuse was things comes out as they come out. Additionally our server kept tripping up and his excuse was he was just back from vacation! It's sad that this town is over run with hospitality Individuals and this restaurant is more concerned with trying to look hip or cool and they this reach for the image of chic ruined any chance of adequate service!
we were visiting from NC and this place was recommended. we enjoyed happy hour at the bar which we don't have in NC. we sat outside on the patio and it was a really cool atmosphere. Loved it. Food was very good too and an interesting cocktail menu!

Food was good, but service needs to be enhanced
Creative and dynamic
This is one of the best restaurants we have tried in LA (West Hollywood) in the last several years. Very understated on the outside and in front, and so beautifully redone in the back. The food is thoughtful and creative but not unrecognizable. The drinks, delicious and the waitstaff hip and helpful. Grab a drink in the lounge area in the back before heading to table inside or out. We will be back...

It's always a great experience here. We are regulars! Last night (Thursday) was very crowded and one of the guy bartenders (the short haired one) was very snappy :(
We've become occasional regulars at Laurel Hardware, and yet every visit seems a treat. This time, we ordered some of our favorites (pork ribs, house cut fries, pepperoni pizza) and also tried two new dishes -- the hamachi (delicious) and the carrots, which were one of the best things we've eaten in months. As always, service was charming and smart. We always ask for (and have been lucky enough to get) the back patio -- it's a wonderful space. I suspect we'll continue to return for some of the best dining in the area.

It was very quiet - but that was because we were seated in the front area. The back and lovely garden were all filled with a very high noise level. Definitely a scene. If you want the garden, be sure to specify in your reservation. Loved the food.

My fish was full of bones and they did not let me know to watch out for that. It's fine if a fish has bones, but usually I am told and there is a way to separate the bones from the meat with ones fork. Also, our waitress came over maybe once. Had she been more attentive, we could have ordered more than one drink. Really not great service in our experience last night. Good atmosphere though.
Love Laurel Hardware!
My kids and I wanted to try a different place and Laurel Hardware had such great reviews we drove over the hill from the valley! The restaurant is spacious with lots of different seating areas, the back patio is lovely. The menu afforded something for vegetarians and meat-eaters alike, we especially enjoyed the chicory salad, kale salad, gnocchi, and the brussel sprouts were amazing!The wine list had some unique offerings, I especially liked my glass of Zinfandel. The dessert menu was fun as well, I had a wonderful panna cotta with a glass of Madiera that paired very well. We will definitely come back!!

Food is not good, everything came out at different times, service was horrible. I will say the drinks are good tho
Yummy food yummy crowd
We had a reservation. We grabbed a few drinks and apps and got caught in the convo and the hot crowd so the meal was light but the drinking was heavy. Great infused house infused natural vodka. Always a great spot!

Was fine except they called to confirm reservation and to tell it might be on patio (was raining) or front room. They took my request to be in main room. When I arrived they had no record of the call and the only available was front room. This was second visit, now I remember why I don't like restaurants that have a very pronounced heirchy. My money is as good as anyone's.

Great friend and I decided on LH due to it being so close to my home. We were blown away by the food! The Brussel Sprouts have me OBSESSED. Don't skip the gnocchi or the kale salad either. We topped it off with the Bread pudding and Butterscotch pudding. I would lean towards the bread pudding. Dining out on the patio was perfect even on a chilly night. Great heat lamps and delicious wine and food to warm the soul
We loved the outdoor area! We've eaten here for dinner and Sunday brunch. The ambiance at night is really nice with the string lights hanging above you. Brunch was nice too, but definitely had a different vibe then dinner. The girls enjoyed the different flavored mimosas they offer on the weekends. The carafes are a bit small though. Overall a pretty cool spot! We'll definitely be back!

I had heard a lot about this place but never had the chance to come. I was pleasantly surprised. Will definitely go back!
The food was not great, the service was decent
The food is over priced and not special, the fries and Korean raw fish dish was pretty terrible. The skirt steak is average and tiny. The octopus was average. Nothing was a standout and nothing I haven't had better elsewhere for half the price. We sat out on the patio, very quiet, unlike the bar which was insane. The meals are tiny but cost as much as a fine dining restaurant but are not the quality of a fine dining restaurant. The service was pretty good but I would not recommend this place to anyone as the food was just not great and so I don't see the point.

Hostesses were horribly rude. We were late for our reservation so understandably seated in a less desirable spot (in the front, which is by the kitchen, quiet, and for the most part empty) but never told we could wait for a table in the much more social and attractive back part, which includes a large bar, outdoor patio, and several indoor tables. Throughout our visit we saw the hostesses watching us like we didn't belong, not what you want for a 90 meal (for two people) consisting mostly of small plates. The whole experience was uncomfortable and doesn't inspire a return visit. That being said, the food was good - not amazing - as were the drinks. Our waiter was lovely and attentive as well. It's good if you are close by but my time here was damaged irreparably by the bizarre and unwarranted attitude of the hostesses.

I just wanted a simple roasted veggie plate because I'm vegan and gluten free as well as pregnant. But they were unable to do that.
My girlfriends and I picked Laurel Hardware to celebrate one of our birthdays. We had heard wonderful things about the food and the setting. All were true and we had a lovely celebration. The only negative was that we called ahead to ask about bringing a balloon for the birthday girl. Over the phone, we were told one balloon would be perfectly ok. Unfortunately, upon arrival, we were told the policy did not allow balloons and ours was taken away. There should be more clear communication with employees as to the rules. This wasn't a huge deal, but certainly an annoying one.
Cool space and yummy food
Loved this restaurant. Be warned though, your reservation does not guarantee a personal table. You may end up sharing a communal table space with others or sitting near the bar at a lounge type table. Also there are three distinct eating areas that you could end up in - the front area by the kitchen which gets smokey and you can't see the rest of the restaurant at all, the middle bar area which is darker and a cool space but gets very loud, or the back patio which is charming and perfect and easier to hear. The food is shared plates and delicious. The butterscotch dessert is a must! I would recommend getting an early reservation, no later than 7:30 to try to ensure you get a table in the back if possible.
WORST SERVICE EVER!
